While many will be celebrating Thanksgiving, my family in NY will be attending a memorial and funeral for my sister in law's father who passed away suddenly on Monday night. My heart goes out to Donna and the family as they mourn the loss of a dear father!!! I so wish I could be there but due to the inclement weather, I can not. It is hard to create a card when your heart aches but I tried my best.
At times like this, there is just no words ...That is why the new release to come out at Our Daily Bread Designs on December 1- No Words- is perfect. Nothing can take away the pain. For this card I used No Words, Ornate Borders and Flowers, Ornate background from ODBD which will be released on Dec. 1. The ornate flower is cut out with the custom ODBD Flower and Frames Die.
Thanks for Looking!!

It's always so hard to lose a loved one, but when it happens unexpectedly, the loss is even harder to bare. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family, Chris. You made a beautiful card with lovely texture, and I know this was not easy for you! Your work is always so pretty, even under pressure! Thank you for your kind words to me today, Chris. They were very much appreciated.

At times like these it is hard to express our feelings. But you've succeded and I hope it helps heal your heart too. It surely will bring comfort to your sister in law.
This is beautiful. Love the embossing and I've always believed those words.
